What is SUPAF?
The Southern Utah Performing Arts Festival (SUPAF) provides an opportunity for students of all ages, individually or in small or large groups, to perform for a professional adjudicator in the following categories:
-Piano -Strings -Vocal -Brass -Woodwinds
-Dance -Orchestra -Choir -Band -Percussion
Adjudicators give verbal and written feedback and rate the performance. They also select scholarship recipients to further their studies in the performing arts.
Although awards are given, SUPAF is not intended primarily as a competition, but is an opportunity for participants to perform, receive professional coaching, improve their talents, be recognized for their accomplishments, and be encouraged to pursue the arts.
Following all performances, the community is invited to the Festival of the Stars, a showcase of the variety of wonderful talent in the area.
The St. George Exchange Club has sponsored SUPAF —its number one community project– from its inception in 1987. The National Exchange Club is the largest and oldest exclusively national service club in the nation. It involves men and women from various segments of the community who join together voluntarily to promote Americanism, Community Service, Youth Recognition and Development, and the Prevention of Child Abuse.
